out of competition at the San Sebastián Film Festival, Fernando Colomo (Madrid, 1946) demonstrated that, as far as he was concerned, the passage of time and a lack of resources did not necessarily imply a reduction in energy, freedom or enthusiasm. With La tribu (lit. “The Tribe”), his 21st film, which began principal photography last week, he certainly confirms this: it is a movie brimming with music, joy and colour, toplined by two extremely charming actors: Paco León (Kiki, Love to Love [+see also:

Today, her son bears an uncanny resemblance to Paco León, who breathes life into an executive who has lost everything, including his memory, and her reunion with him will give her a chance to feel part of a family again – one bound by rhythm.

La tribu’s storyline was written by Joaquín Oristrell, Yolanda G Serrano and Colomo himself: “I feel very at ease with this screenplay.

The cast of the film – which will be shot over a period of seven weeks, in both Madrid and Barcelona – is rounded off by Luis Bermejo, Julián López, Bárbara Santa Cruz, Artur Busquets and Manuel Huedo. It is being produced by MOD Producciones and Atresmedia Cine, in conjunction with Movistar +. It will be released next year by Hispano Foxfilms, and its international sales have been entrusted to Catalan sales agent Film Factory Entertainment.
